GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Spring football is wrapping up around the country, with most major programs having hosted their spring games already at this point.
So we have a much better idea which coaches were able to spark the most interest from their fanbase.
Dan Mullen, of course, was active in promoting a “Pack the Swamp” campaign, visiting Gator clubs around the state and hitting up fraternity and sorority houses to encourage them to come out to the spring game.
So where does Florida’s spring game attendance stack up so far? The Gators’ draw of 53,015 for the Orange and Blue Game currently ranks eighth nationally.
“I thank all of the fans and everybody, our student body, everybody in the Gator Nation that came out to support us,” Mullen said. “To come out and have a crowd the way we did and get excited about it, that’s going to motivate that team this summer to know the support that they have behind them, the standards and expectations of all the fans in the Gator Nation everywhere, that they have them supporting them behind them to see that.”
